Bestselling author Lauraine Snelling shares a heartfelt story of a couple who, when their son becomes missing in action, put their plans for a peaceful retirement on hold to assume guardianship of their young grandchildren. Meg and Kenneth Sorenson are approaching the best years of their life. In their fifties and near early retirement, their hearts are set on traveling abroad and spending limitless hours in the garden. It’s what they deserve after years of careful planning. But when they learn their son has gone MIA on a military assignment, they try to hold the family, and even their plans, together. The mother of their grandchildren has been long out of the picture, so the Sorensons become guardians of the two- and four-year olds. They step back into a role they thought long behind them and pray they make it work—perhaps with no peaceful second half on their horizon.
